Fabulous chicken, grilled to perfection. I like the grilled cebollitas and jalapenos, beans, and tortillas. Two different sauces come with the chicken as well.

I love the chicken, it falls off the bone. It has a great roasted flavor. I love the green rice and plantains. I have been there several times and have never been disappointed.
